The Ad-Aware AE Service is showing 32.3Million page faults :D , currently and is only taking up 47,572K of RAM (wherease, 1K for the Tray and 21K for the actual Ad-Aware.exe).

Any ideas as to why it takes so long to do a full system scan?

Well you do have a lot of disc space to scan, but most of it seems empty so I'm not sure why that is.

 

As for the page faults it is something I have contacted Lavasoft about - although I have noway near that number! What sort of files do you have on your server? You could reduce the file size for Ad-Aware to skip if you have a lot of videos for example.

Is 2+ hrs really that long? I calculated you have 237.42 gb used space and dual 2.8 ghz processors. It takes ~ 2 hrs for me to scan 80 gb with a single 2.4 ghz processor. I have Ad-Aware set to skip files larger than 20 mb, the default, and also shutdown all other processes while scanning.
